In this ever increasingly challenging and complex business environment, HR teams are required to combat not only the perception of administrative experts but also the misconception that HR cannot bring strategic value to organizations. 

The HR Team at Zodiac Marine & Pool North America Inc. went through such a tumultuous journey. The backdrop for this journey may resonate with many of you - beginning with the merger of multiple companies in diverse industries, to dealing with various changes in leadership in rapid succession, to executing a plant shut down and relocation, and, finally, to developing the culture for the current emerging organization, HR had to survive, evolve and thrive amidst this tumultuous setting to become relevant and valued.

Join us to hear Ruben Galvan, Vice President of Human Resources for Zodiac Marine & Pool North America Inc. as he walks us through this voyage and shares his insights gained during the past four years as he rebuilt HR at Zodiac.  No matter where your company is at in the organizational life cycle, Ruben will provide tips and strategies that HR professionals can apply immediately at work to reinvigorate and re- energize the HR function in any environment.

The information in this presentation will serve as a good starting point for some and as a reminder for new and seasoned HR leaders to continue forging their HR practice into a rock solid strategic partner.

  • HR Basics – Is your HR function up to par
  • Talent Acquisition – Are you hiring the talent you need
  • Gaining Business Acumen – How well do you know the business
  • Talent Management – What have you done to help the organization lately
  • Delivering Results – What really matters and how do you know you are performing
  • Earning Respect in the C-Suite – How to keep your seat at the table
